Make Your Bid Day the Best Day
For sorority women across the country, bid day is more than just a day of meeting your new sisters. Bid day is about celebrating your sisterhood, taking pride in your organization and showcasing why you love your chapter. For new members who just joined, this is their first opportunity to see what your chapter is like. Here are a few ways to make your chapter’s bid day, the best day.
(1) Picking a great theme - To the current members, the theme of your bid day is incredibly important. The chapter needs to feel connected and enthusiastic about the theme. It’s important to pick a theme that represents the women in your chapter and one that can be executed well. If you need helping thinking of theme ideas, Pinterest is a great place to start.
(2) Having great gifts - For your new members, the gifts they receive on bid day are very important. They want to be able to sport their new sorority all around campus and gifts are a great way to do that. You can give your new members gifts like this phone ring stand to help them showcase their new chapter.
(3) Activities - At your bid day, you’ll want to make sure you have plenty of activities for new and active members. Nothing is worse than showing up to the best event of the year and then standing around. You can buy games like Twister, corn hole and ring toss to help give members things to do!
(4) Great food - Food is a critical part of any social event, but it’s particularly important for bid day. After picking your theme, you’ll want to make sure your food matches the theme. For instance, if you have a baseball theme, you can include things like popcorn, hot dogs and Cracker Jacks.
Bid day is an important day for both new and active members of your sorority. By using these tips, you can ensure a successful bid day that everyone will remember for years to come!
